Red Fish, Blue Fish
Too Good To Be True Fish
so heres the story.
mom cleaning fish for dinner. son cutting garlic for dinner.
mom: ohhhh this is why the fish mouth is open so big
mom pulls out a tiny fish from the mouth of the bigger fish.
little fish is still intact and in perfect condition since it was only swallowed. not digested.
sons brain turning and churning. (pretty hard to act out actually)
son: that means that the bigger fish had just eaten the smaller fish when he got caught!
mom: not necesarily-
son cuts in
son: oh i know! the big fish got caught with lotsa small fishes, so he enjoy lah!
here is what i gather from this…
here is one lucky fish minding his own business…
when suddenly a big swarm of little fishies came rushing his way!
wow! what an opportunity! and none of the fishes were trying to even dogde him!
he saw a random bunch of bigger fish having their fun with the sudden rush of little fishies…
so he thought, this is so awesome! i’m gonna join the fun before it gets away!
the swarm then reached him, rushed into him…
he literally just had to open his mouth and one fish flew in…
but he realised that the rush of fish was also too strong…
now, he wasnt worried that his food would get away…
he realised that it was he
who would not be getting away
can something be too good?
when what you have worked for all your life comes rushing into your face, what decision would you make?
would you rush in to grab it?
or would you assess the situation?
or would you measure the probability, draw out the bell curve, and ask your finance manager for advice?
how do we know what to do?
this does not only apply to good situations…
what if something bad happens, do we rush straight out?
do we assess the situation?
or draw out some histogram and map out a distribution chart?
how do we EVEN REALLY know that we are in a bad sitch?
things will happen to us…
“bad” and “good“…
no matter what…
I do truly wish that the sunday school song would go a-something like this:
read your bible,
and you will
life would be so easy
but the song doesnt.
so what should we do?
